Joe Cunningham Raises More Than $528,000 in Q3 Without a Dime of PAC Money
Cunningham has raised approximately $2 million to date in his reelection bid
Charleston, SC -- With a third quarter haul of more than $528,000, Congressman Joe Cunningham has raised approximately $2 million towards his re-election bid for South Carolina’s First Congressional District -- all without taking a single dime from PACs or special interests.
Cunningham raised $528,862 in the third quarter of 2019, bringing his overall haul to $1.9 million since being elected last November. The Cunningham campaign has $1.3 million cash on hand and Cunningham is set to eclipse his entire 2018 fundraising total of $2.3 million.
Cunningham campaign manager Allie Watters said the campaign is ready to defend the seat in 2020.
“Rejecting PAC money and corporate special interest cash isn’t the politically easy thing to do, but Joe’s here to serve the people of the Lowcountry -- not the special interests,” said Watters. “Democrats and Republicans across the Lowcountry see Joe crossing party lines to get things done for the folks back at home, which is why so many voters are working hard to keep him in office. From successfully passing a bill to ban offshore drilling to consistently ranking as one of the most independent members of Congress, there's not a promise made to the people of the Lowcountry that Joe hasn't kept.”
